I would like to install CUDA 9.2. on Linux Mint 19.

It was possible to install CUDA on Linux Mint 18.3 even though Linux Mint is not an officially supported distribution. However, Linux Mint 18 was based on Ubuntu 16.04, the newer Linux Mint 19 is now based on Ubuntu 18.04 (wikipedia).

Ubuntu 18.04 seems to have a super easy solution (most popular answer) which is also tempting but I would prefer to avoid switching distros if I can avoid it.

  • Hi, were you able to make this work? – DrkStr Dec 4 '18 at 2:39
  • I decided it was best to switch distros and have been using Ubuntu 18.04 – Sam Murphy Dec 5 '18 at 12:54

Linux Mint is derived from Ubuntu so much that works on one should work on the other.

Just try the "super easy solution" - the one that currently has 18 points, not the one that is the "accepted answer".

  • It tries to install nvidia-driver-396 but is unable to find its dependencies. – Sam Murphy Aug 23 '18 at 11:08
  • "Linux Mint 19 installs Cuda 9.2 and cuDNN, NCCL" >>> siteinsights.co/2018/07/14/… NEED TO TRANSLATE! – user8779 Aug 23 '18 at 11:15
  • I gave that a go but didn't work. There is obviously a typo at export PATH=/usr/local/cuda/bin:$PAT (i.e. should end in $PATH) – Sam Murphy Aug 23 '18 at 13:55
  • and when I got to this line GLPATH="/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu" GLLINK="-L/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu" DFLT_PATH="/usr/lib" EGLLIB="/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu" GLESLIB="/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu" make -j61 I am told that make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop. – Sam Murphy Aug 23 '18 at 13:56
